A couple of Nashers

There once was a muse who espoused creativity;
Tho' laughingly inspired words lacking civility.

Easy to imitate badly, impossible to imitate well,
Nash’s comedic style is irreverantly silent as a bell.


Easy to spot his orange hair,
Trump has a flair for his lair.

He takes much from the poor
For he owes his rich amour.

Not other wives, oh no!
But his Russian sponsor-o!
